    I think these are beautiful guitars. Very classic, but still elegant and modern.

    Which do you like the best and WHY. Most of these are taken from members of TGP; I just wanted to put them all together so the differences are clearer and the nuances are noticed. Some are different shades, some have bigsby's, some are reliced.

    Please post your thoughts!

    I want them all!


    I've never cared for Nash's relic work but that guitar looks great! I know realistic wear on a maple neck is very difficult.

    I like the wear on that as opposed to finger wear, which, to me, looks like crap 99% of the time no matter who does the work.

    Not sure on the Jeff Beck tele... looks like a Nash to me.

    Twisted Tele's are also pretty bad, if you ask me.

    That might be the best looking Nash I've seen. Most of the ones I've seen have left me shaking my head, but that one I would snatch up in a heartbeat. Sweet guitar.

    Changed it up a bit since then....turned it into an esquire with a Vintage Vibe T90 pickup. In it's original incarnation, it was a 94 MIM Standard. Plays and sounds great.

    How in the world is someone supposed to choose a favorite from those!

    What a great idea for a thread. Obviously this look is one of my favorites ever and I love how many great examples of this look can be found on this forum.

    This thread made my day. Thank You!

    What about rosewood neck with that combo? I just picked up a G&L like that and love it.

    Like the first one.

    Though I really wouldn't call that one white.

    All sweet though ... 'cept Bigsby's on Teles doesn't do it for me.

    I think they are all great. These are the ones I like.

    With this particular color / wood combo, I'm not a fan of the humbucker in the neck. I also prefer light to no relic-ing. The last one would be probably be a little past my relic-ing limit, but it does look cool.

    Funny how some love bigs on teles and some don't. Just to each their own, you know? More responses, go.

    I agree. It is my favorite Tele look. Not a Fender, but here is my Suhr.
